It can have a long-lasting impact on both your physical and emotional well-being, as well as affecting your income-earning ability and financial well-being. Similarly, a traumatic brain injury isn’t just a personal injury. Your recovery journey can even affect your loved ones. If you didn’t cause the accident, you deserve compensation.

A commonly known cause of traumatic brain injuries is motor vehicle accidents. Other causes include:
There are three types of traumatic brain injuries: mild, moderate, and severe.
If you have suffered a traumatic brain injury as a result of someone else’s actions or negligence, you may be entitled to compensatory damages. There may be no amount of money to erase what you have already suffered and may continue to suffer from your injury. Compensation, however, is intended to make you as “whole” as possible. Some damages may be more easily calculated than others. The types of compensation you may be entitled to include:
Calculating some compensatory damages may not be as clear-cut as medical damages or property loss, but you may still be entitled to compensation for them. These damages include:
When you file a personal injury claim in California, you must show that negligence caused your traumatic brain injury. In California, everyone has a duty to act in a way that does not harm others. You and your lawyer must show that the at-fault party didn’t do that. You’ll also have to show that their actions or inaction caused the accident that resulted in your TBI. Then you’ll have to show that you actually suffered losses because of the accident. Once you prove those things, you should be able to obtain compensation.
The statute of limitations in California for filing a personal injury claim for a traumatic brain injury is two years from the time of the injury. This means that if the two-year window elapses and you file your claim after that, the court will likely dismiss your case. You’ll have missed your opportunity to obtain compensation through the court system.
Between 2001 and 2009, there were 61,188 traumatic brain injury hospitalizations and deaths in the state of California.
The CDC reports almost 61,000 deaths related to TBI in 2019.
